Ran something via ODIN that wouldn't trip the counter
Installed Rom Manager (I'm a *****?)
Flashed ClockworkMod...I think
Dumped the CM10 .zip into my phone, and selected/installed it through Rom manager.
It looked like something began happening, and now it has been stuck on a CyanogenMod spinning "loader" sort of thing for around 10 minutes.
Where's my problem?
Edit: Rebooting the phone: Samsung GS3 splash appears, followed by the spinning CyanogenMod splash of death forever.
are you on att or verizon gs3?
for verizon i know you have to root it by either odin an rooted stock rom (or use an easy root toolkit) then from there run the ez unlock bootloader app. then ez recovery. install cwm or twrp from there clear data/factory cache, davik cache format system then install rom
first boot will take awhile.
